The 54th European Marine Biology Symposium will be held in Dublin, and is hosted by University College Dublin in the state-of-the-art O’Brien Centre for Science. 

2019 is the International Year of the Salmon, a fish that has a special place in the mythology of Ireland.  Look out for salmon throughout the scientific and social programme.

In addition to the traditional general session covering any and all aspects of marine biology, we will focus on the follow themes:

Blue Growth

In this session, we will explore the potential of marine organisms and ecosystems to underpin economic and societal benefits and examine potential risks and emerging approaches to sustainability.

Rapid change

This session will explore evidence for rapid changes in patterns and processes at any scale and at any level of organisation.

Movement and redistribution of species

Research on any aspect of movement biology or species distribution will be captured in this session.

Fundamental biological traits

This session aims to capture recent research and synthesis of the fundamental biology of marine organisms and to explore innovative approaches to bridging the gaps in our knowledge of their traits.
